LibriVox recording of Jane Austen's Juvenilia.
Before becoming the author of such classics as Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma, Jane Austen experimented with various writing styles as a teenager in the early 1790s. This is a collection of her juvenilia, including the epistolary novels Love and Freindship, Lesley Castle, and Lady Susan, as well as her comic History of England and some shorter pieces. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Having listened to the first of the epistolary novellas- I must say it is very funny, and the delivery well adapted to the material. Almost absurd or surreal in many parts, but delivered with consistent graceful seriousness.
